Between delayed approval for plans, -50 degree C temperatures, absent plumbers, part time flooring guys, etc, etc, etc, we are a long way from moving in. The quality of the work is great, the timeliness? Not so much.
|Remarkably, it still looks much like this.|
When we realized we were (and frustratingly enough still are) not going to be moving in anytime soon and had booked holidays we couldn't cancel, we decided we needed to do something else.
We had a gift certificate to a Mineral Spa in a nearby town. We booked last minute for Sunday night - a jacuzzi room with a free breakfast and full use of the mineral pools. With my back trouble (especially how badly I wretched it last week again) and The Guy working hard and stressing about the house build, we needed the relaxation.

We lounged at the pool for awhile, soaked our troubles away, and had the rest of the afternoon to while the hours. We wandered through the city and marvelled in the beauty (though - every store was closed!)

|I was captivated by this church.|
That was... until we went to the new house.
